The "generic C# way" is do one of:

1. Have your native C lib produce UTF-8 encoded strings on Unix and "normal"
ANSI strings on Win32.

2. Alter your C library to use UTF-16 strings and alter your C# wrapper to use

ANSI strings are largely broken anyway, as they can only ever contain a subset
of all strings that the user can produce, so (2) is the saner solution...
